Tumbling Blocks

Tumbling Blocks


Tumbling Blocks is made of birch bark, and spruce roots dyed with iron. The base of the basket is bias woven and double woven. Every strip is reinserted though every weave to have the inner most surface of the bark showing on both the inside and outside of the piece. This method is both time consuming and strong. The spruce root overlay is knotted and inserted following the weave. Eyelash curls are added to highlight the blocks. The rim is sewn entirely with spruce root and has a nice knot.
